"Popcorn" is the eleventh painting in the Sustenance Series.

The original artwork is a 30x30” acrylic and oil painting on gallery thick (1.5”) cradled birch wood.

Stand close to the work and watch the scene fragment into impressionistic geometry, or stand back and watch it knit together into a more photo-realistic artwork.

The photo referenced for this painting was curated and captured by the artist, Hannah Kilby.


Fine Art Paper Giclée

The fine art paper print comes borderless and without a frame, the photos featuring frames are simply to help visualize the art. The fine art paper used is archival quality and has a matte finish.

Stretched Canvas Giclée

The canvas print is stretched onto a 1.5" deep wooden frame, the print is mirrored around the edges to mimic how the original painting's scene wraps onto the edge of the panel. The canvas used is archival quality and has a satin finish.

Care Guide

Handle the print as lightly as possible, with oil-free, gloved hands if possible. The oils from our skin can tarnish and discolour the surface of the print.

What is a "giclée"?

Giclée (pronounced jhee-clay) is the term coined for the latest generation of fine art reproduction. The term means “to spurt” in French and comes from the fact that a giclée printer is basically an inkjet printer taken to the extreme. Giclées are printed with a microscopic sized dot pattern allowing for virtual continuous tone printing. Using 10 different coloured inks we are able to capture a range of colours previously unheard of, resulting in the absolute highest quality print imaginable.

Open vs. Limited Edition

Open Edition:

While of the same excellent quality as a limited edition print, there is no limit to the number of copies that will be made of the original painting when offered as an open edition print. These prints are priced more economically than their higher value counterparts for this reason.

Limited Edition:

These prints are offered as a singular, limited batch, usually of 100. Once the available prints are sold, there will not be more made. Limited edition prints are signed, dated, numbered to show which print out of the batch each is and they come with a certificate of authenticity. Due to the limited nature of these prints, they are valued higher than open edition prints.

The Sustenance Series

In July 2021 an afternoon snack of some dewy cherries in a bowl launched a multi-year series when I became enamoured with capturing vibrant still-life scenes in acrylic & oil paint.

Originally meant as a one-off, my painting “Cherries” was an inspiration experiment for me, especially considering I was predominantly a landscape painter then.

Getting my paint brushes in hand each day to continue work on the 48x48” birch wood panel was an absolute joy beyond anything I’d experienced as an artist at that time.

There’s a quote by Jennifer Lee that goes: “Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire”. Perhaps painting a big scene of cherries doesn’t seem to be the most daring thing, but for me stretching to create something so out of my comfort zone, and chasing that bubbling of joy was exactly that: pursuing something that set my soul alight.

“Cherries” became the first of the collection that would eventually be called The Sustenance Series.

I’ve been lucky to connect with so many people online who’ve contributed ideas for subjects to the series, commented support for the continuation of the collection and supported the work by buying a print or original piece.
